The latest addition to our Some Thoughts From series: Margherita Maccapani Missoni. The 29-year old newly-wed is the accessories designer and heiress to the Missoni fashion house, which was founded by her grandparents in 1953. She is a natural style goddess and the ideal Missoni spokesmodel, as she is almost always decked out in the family wares. Here are MMM's thoughts on the family-run fashion house, turbans and Lake Como.
On Missoni: I know I wouldn’t be able to work for any other fashion house or brand. I genuinely think I can do better than anybody else for the family’s fashion house since I was born into and grew up surrounded by their vision, so I don’t need to adapt my tastes to the Missoni aesthetic, because I have integrated it into my own self since I was a child.
On turbans: I wear a lot of turbans. I really like turbans. They keep the hair away from your face, which is really annoying to me, and at the same time, you look polished.
On materialism: Life is a balance between giving and receiving, the objects we possess do not really belong to us, we are just holding on to them for now.
On the Villa d'Este in Lake Como: 'This is the best hotel in the world, hands down. I love the old-fashioned feel of it: the piano playing during aperitivo, the waiters who have been there forever, and the dock where you can leave your little boat; it was always full of beautiful old Rivas.'
On Gucci: I was 12 when I started really wanting stuff from other brands. It was the first year of Tom Ford at Gucci and there were those velvet suits in red or blue.
